  1. Buddy sure has a limited vocabulary! Back when I was learning to fly we used to call the beech bonanza a doctor's coffin. Sad day. Rest in peace Roy.
  2. Let me guess, you have two commas in that stock value by now.
  3. What is the average hours and cycles on the Dash8 -300. I remember when they were new!
  4. Well as usual there are other sides to a story. Unfortunately the company cannot tell their side unless they are sued. I'm sure the company has solid grounds for dismissal. It seems that reporters really like to give one side of the story particularly if it's negative. Time down the road the truth or the other story is seldom heard. Yes they worked for a company who cares but this company probably doesn't like being abused.
  5. Malcolm and Kip, my utmost respect to you guys and your wives. Through thick and thin, richer or poorer may you continue for many more years in love. I'm stil with my first wife, also my BFF.
  6. If CRA/Liberal government want to collect more taxes then the first thing they should do is lower the tax base and then institute a compulsory receipt for every transaction. No numbered receipt? No payment required.. That way they would reduce under-the-table cash transactions and the tax would collectable on income earnings and GST, HST and PST as required. Just my opinion.
  7. I'd like to hear from the F/O on his side of the story.
  8. My take is that the Liberals asked CRA to try and float this taxable benefit increase and see what the response would be. Alas, it didn't go over well so the Liberals blame CRA for marking a stupid attempt at a tax increase.
  9. I thought blues deville didn't fly WestJet!
  10. Looks like major over controlling judging by the full stop to stop deflection of the rudder. 20mph? 17kt wind.
  11. Big loss for Canada, bigger loss for Quebec. Although I don't have any sympathy for Quebec which wouldn't allow the east pipeline expansion. That's a much bigger loss for Canada.
  12. Maybe, but it's a little hard to get a three engine ferry permit on a 777.
  13. I suppose that Air France will get a 3 engine ferry permit and fly it to a better local for an engine change and repair.
  14. Something got lost in translation...maybe?
  15. Maybe it's called evolution, adaptation, reality or even staying fit. Besides the current CEO is not as tunnel visioned as the previous one.who said that we're never going to YYZ. The basic business model therefore changed.
  16. And no seatbelt extensions are provided to anyone in the exit row.
  17. Angela Hewitt ships her Fazioli prior to her performances. She only plays her piano.
  18. The way the seats are getting cramped it won't be long before the cello doesn't fit anyway.
  19. I don't think so. Even before the aircraft gets to V1 of 160 kts the decision to reject or continue needs a human element. What happened to the Tesla's auto drive car? First fatality. So let's experiment with live people for pilotless aircraft. http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/small-biz/security-tech/technology/driverless-crashes/articleshow/56510821.cms
  20. Maybe it's the f/o's duty to assist?
  21. DEFCON. The chemtrail and strobe switch is a three position switch. So it's understandable that the strobes were on instead of the chemtrail system especially in he vicinity of CBs. Just different forms of visibility. Simple mistake. Happens often.
